Flexible, cut-resistant gloves for manufacturing and construction

| By Mary Page Bailey and Gerald Ondrey

SmartCut BKCR2403 cut-resistant gloves (photo) are designed for jobs that not only need cut and abrasion resistance, but still require a focus on long-wearing grip, dexterity and flexibility. This light-duty, cut-resistant glove offers ANSI Cut Resistance Level 2 protection balanced with extreme dexterity for tasks calling for very fine motor skills and tactile sensitivity. Its composite yarn includes a blend of high-strength filament fibers for cut resistance, upwound with nylon and spandex to enable high levels of dexterity. The 18-gauge high-performance polyethylene and glass-fiber shell is lightweight and provides the ANSI cut level 2 protection. A black polyurethane palm coating delivers reliable abrasion protection and enhanced grip. SmartCut BKCR2403 gloves are versatile enough to be used for light-duty job functions in diverse industries, such as construction, glass handling, HVAC, manufacturing and metal fabrication — Brass Knuckle Safety Products, Alpharetta, Ga.
